Well speaking from personal experience online,I find to be worse than for Ike. Idk, I practice with CPUs since I don't have a working TV to use a LAN adapter with. So maybe level 9 Roy isn't that good or something, but Simon and Richter feel much worse to face. Ike's poor mobility just feels so bad against them. Trying to approach from the air? They can axe, or dash back and whip/cross/holy water. Trying to stay grounded? They can whip/cross/holy water/down tilt/dash attack/nair. It feels so difficult to weave around their projectiles as Ike. Meanwhile, Ike outranges Roy. I wouldn't list Roy as a good matchup for Ike but his worst? I'm doubtful on that.
, , , , and likewise have similarly good projectile games and strong enough traits in CQC/killing that I'd probably also consider them more difficult than Roy. Ike handles projectiles better than some other characters, but they're still rough for him imo.
Getting past the projectile wall the Belmonts set up might be hard, but once Ike gets in, his huge aerials make it a nightmare for the Belmonts to go back and set up once they're in disadvantage.
Good Roys meanwhile feels like they always got a whole host of fast aerials that both break combos/strings and ways to keep close range pressure on Ike while Ike doesn't really have anything fast to counter it beyond his stubby jab or going for a read with Aether.
